Actual bricks, I'd side with Bfenix on this one as well, if you use stripes on a car, for example, when you take the car apart, it'll be pretty difficult to find a new use for those bricks now that they have racing stripes on them.
My point exactly, thx Enders. And when I mentioned washing your Legos I meant it literally. When I came back from my Dark Age I had lots of bricks covered in dust and cotton, so I washed them with water and regular liquid hand soap. Crystal clear. Being able to be washed in water with little worries of ruining the bricks is one feature I really dig, although I only did it once.
